Long road back for Republic’s hopes
MARTIN O’NEILL’S Republic of Ireland face mission impossible in Dublin tonight.
They take on Denmark, who handed out a humiliating 5-1 defeat at The Aviva in the World Cup play-offs last year.
But the Republic desperately need all three points if they are to retain any realistic hope of overhauling their visitors in Nations League B Group 4.
It is no surprise Ireland are the outsiders this evening at 21-10. Denmark are 31-20 to follow up their success last November.
You can also back the draw at around the 2-1 mark. Ladbrokes have Shane Long level with Callum Robinson at 13-5 to score at any time.
Ajax ace Kasper Dolberg is favourite along with Andreas Cornelius and Martin Braithwaite for the Danes, with each priced at 13-5. I fancy Holberg though and if Ireland are not careful, the youngster could run riot here.
Matches involving Denmark tend to be low on chances.
The betting is 4-9 for under 2.5 goals for the 10th time in 11 Denmark matches, with under 1.5 goals chalked up at 29-20. In short,
Saturday, October 13, 2018 JUSTIN TIME: Edinburgh’s Orient are on a roll ALWAYS VALUE CAPITAL BETS: Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea could lead the way in London and (below) the Gunners’ Alexandre Lacazette can finish as their top scorer don’t hold your breath for much excitement. Elsewhere, Portsmouth head over to AFC Wimbledon and I’m convinced the 7-5 on the visitors taking all three points is a steal. Knowing that a win will keep them sitting comfortably at the top of the table, surely Pompey will breeze past a Wimbledon side who have lost five of their last six matches.But I’m expecting Peterborough to keep up the pressure at the top and at a healthy 31-20 should prove too strong for Scunthorpe. GREEN FOR GO: Shane Long is 13-5 to score any time
